I cannot believe I have never posted about reading logs before! I wrote a whole darn book on them! I know, I said my next post would be about "Book Baggies," but I really want to finish aligning my Reading Comprehension Cueing Cards to the Common Core Standards before promoting them again. That snowballed into me updating the graphics! Then, I updated to Mountain Lion OS X for my iMac and what a huge mistake!!! My Preview application changed so that I could no longer add hyperlinks to PDF files! I really almost threw my Mac out the window! I am still really angry with Apple and I have no clue how to go back to my old OS. I had to purchase a new PDF-Editor program on top of already purchasing the Mountain Lion OS X! So Apple, if you are reading this I left you a comment and I am not a happy camper! I think 5 Ipads for my classroom would make me feel a lot better :) Click here to read the thread about the issue. So readers, just hold tight on the Book Baggie Post and I apologize.
On to reading logs! Click above for my FREE Reading Log Starter Kit and read below for some tips!
I send home a reading log every Friday and it is returned to school the following Thursday. I do this so that I have a day cushion for students who "forget" to bring it in.
The number labels on the tabs help me keep track of returned reading logs. I assign each student a number according to their alphabetical order on the class list. For more information on the numbering system and the number labels, check out my Back to School Organizational Forms and More Packet on TpT.
Each week, I place the reading log inside the folder. Most of my reading logs are from my book. You can check out the book by clicking the picture below.
I try and vary my reading logs as much as I can and I also utilize these resources below. Click on the images to check them out.
This freebie is by Rachelle Smith of What the Teacher Wants
These sheets are by Michelle Oakes of Fabulous in First Grade.
These two packets are by Lindsey of The Teacher Wife.
This is an adorable packet by Kim Adsit of KinderGals.
This packet is a great for challenging your gifted firsties or for use at the end of the year. Amanda, of One Extra Degree, teaches third grade. These activities could be modeled whole class or utilized in a guided reading group.
I hope this post helped you out! Be sure to follow by email or FB for instant alerts on when I post again. I promise there is a valuable contest coming up and to get to that Book Baggie post! Thanks for reading.
